The Rochdale Dawah Centre (RDC) set up in 2003 in order to:
- Invite Muslims back to the true teachings of the Quran and Sunnah
- Educate non-Muslims about the true teachings of Islam
- Engage and contribute to the community in which we live.
The population of Rochdale is around 100,000 with Muslims accounting for 20%. Through our various projects and activities, we hope to cater for both the Muslim and non Muslim community of Rochdale and the surrounding areas.
RDC is committed to co-operating with other organisations and is open to all members of the community regardless of their faith.
The RDC is funded by donations from the public.
